I have been to Sushi Rio tens of times and the sushi is great. The chef's are good but the waitresses are disappointing. Today I went there for lunch and there was a grandma next to me who had 3 plates of sushi from the train. She wanted to order something from the menu, hailed the waitress and pointed to... More

This is one of the very few sushi trains that let you order your little dishes as much as you like, all for 3$ each, fresh and tasty right from the open kitchen in front of you. Love it.

Came here after reading so many good review about this place but then disappointed. Place was busy and service was good, however the sushi were very so-so and not as what we expected. It might be an affordable sushi place compared to other sushi restaurant in Sydney, but I was kind of regret eating here. For me it's just not... More

Loved our visit. The staff were attentive, the green tea perfect and the sushi delicious. We particularly enjoyed the Rainbow Rolls.

A friend of mine took me to Sushi Rio last year and it has since become my favourite go to Jap sushi train place. You can order anything you want from the menu and they will make it fresh, even if the items you ordered are available on the train. Most sushi plates are $3 (including scampi nigiri!) except for...

I love this place. Expect long queue during lunch/dinner time but it worth the wait. Last time I went they have special of $3 for all plates. Food is always yummy, fresh and quick. Try the handrolls.

This was the 3rd time dining here and we were not disappointed. The ingredients are fresh, the menu is interesting and the staff very polite and helpful. Be prepared to join a que around 7pm - but its worth the short wait. We'll be back!

I've been to many of the good ones but this is my fave. The secret is to order from the menu as that's where their crowd favourites reside. Scallop/prawn omelette hand rolls, grilled scallop/prawn nigiri and the scampi amongst many others .... and all plates $3. Recommended

It was one of the best sushis we ever had. We wanted to go because already from the outside it looked like a restaurant where only loyal (most of them being asiatic: a food sign to us) customers go: there was a line in front of it. The chefs are Japanese, professional and quick. The prices are not that bad:... More

This sushi train place has great tasting food. I've tried different sushi places around Sydney and this one is my favorite. Fresh food, fast service, clean and organized.
